On Fox News recently, John McCain told Howard Kurtz that Jon Stewart was unfair to Republicans, but that it didn’t matter because Stewart is merely one of those lying late-night comedians: “When he says things that are absolutely wrong he gets away with it … It is what it is. I frankly have no beef […]

You know why we can’t have nice things? Today, the reason is Megyn Kelly, the beloved hard-hitting journamalist of Fox “News,” who for some reason my brain cannot comprehend is golden-showered with praise every time she opens her mouth and says something that is remotely accurate. Today, however, is not one of those days. Today, […]

Here’s Sean Hannity posing next to a machine gun on a Border Patrol boat on the Big River Rio Grande in Texas, or May-hee-co, or perhaps hundreds of miles up a river that snakes through the immigration war like a main circuit cable. But here he is, on the boat. “Never get out of the […]

Stacey Dash is hip and young-(ish) and pretty and conservative and also knows who should get raped, and it is Kanye West. In a segment prefaced by blonde Fox bot Sandra Smith saying, “File this one under Just Stop Talking, People!” Dash took Kanye West to task for his ill-advised comparison of paparazzi and rapists, suggesting […]

Holly Fisher is a big fan of Hobby Lobby, America, and Right Living, and she can’t for the life of her understand why anyone would find anything wrong with this photo she tweeted on the 4th of July, because as she explained to Fox News, it’s just a picture of her expressing her First and […]

Well, here’s a heck of a thing: Dr. Keith Ablow, the Smartest Man on Fox TV, according to Dr. Keith Ablow, admits that he’s just a wee bit of a narcissist. On Outnumbered Tuesday, somehow the topic turned to Ablow’s opinion of his own skills, which he is happy to say is quite high. If […]

Remember Princeton Mom? We love the Princeton Mom, Susan Patton! She’s that delightfully deluded anger lady that shamesplained to all the women about how college is a time for meeting men, not for book learning, and how you should stop waiting for that promotion at work and start making eyes at your handsome man boss. […]

So, hey, some pretty good employment news today: The June jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the economy added 288,000 jobs in June, and the unemployment rate dropped from 6.3% in May to 6.1% last month. That’s the lowest unemployment rate since September 2008. So, hooray for Our Economy, unless of […]

Did you have a super fun time watching the USA SportingsBall team lose but not lose forever to Germany today? Well, shame on you for thinking about something other than Benghazi, you pitiful dupe! The worst psychiatrist anywhere, D. Keith Ablow, said today on Fox’s OutNumbered that he’s “a little suspicious about all this “World […]

We’re not sure how we feel about the fact that Fox News had not one, but two, segments yesterday in which their hosts excoriated some of the derpier parts of the right wing. On the one hand, hahahahaha. On the other hand, agreeing with Fox News about things makes us feel icky. Not icky enough […]

For the most part, we are not big fans of Fox’s Megyn Kelly. There’s just something about her head-tilted, unbelieving-skeptic pose that screams Fakey McFakerton to us, as if attitude = hard-hitting journalism. All the same, it’s kind of fun to see that pissed-off sorority-girl-who-can’t-believe-she-got-a-”C” face turned on kitten-devouring warmonkey Dick Cheney and his prop […]

So you might think that this would be something that wingnuts would be happy about: U.S. Special Forces have captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the suspected ringleaders of the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi. He was captured in a raid in Libya and will be brought to the United States for […]

We had been staying away from the awful story about the two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls who stabbed a schoolmate of the same age, supposedly under the influence of online horror stories about a fictional character named Slender Man (or Slenderman — both are used), because yecch. The good news is that the victim survived and […]

Here’s Jon Stewart doing what he does best — sampling the great buffet of rightwing screaminess over the return of an American POW and pointing out that it’s all made out of some pretty sketchy artificial ingredients. Stewart is having a fine time taking on the Bergdullards, especially good old Bill O’Reilly, who finally explained […]

It’s been ten seconds since Tucker Carlson said something dickish, so time had really come for it to happen again. It’s like the man simply can’t resist being an asshole, no matter what the topic. He’s an all-purpose asshole. He’s the Comet cleaner of assholes. You are likely aware that Tracy Morgan was injured when […]
